as a quick follow-up to this two year old post here:


even with linking to libstdc++ first, as i always do, i'm hitting upon
this error on ubuntu 10.04 yet again, after i switched the nvidia
driver to nouveau.

it seems that when gtk.glext is imported in python, and a boost python
module hits a StopIteration exception (as it is usual for generators),
the exception is not caught and the app segfaults.

so apparently, something within gtkglext seems to set-up the problem -
unfortunately, the issue is not traceable. :/
